    Yorkshires a massive county though! We have some deprived places: Bradford, bits of Leeds, bits of Sheffield, most of Rotherham, Doncaster...but yes we also have places like York, Harragate and Cities such as Leeds which equals us out.

    Personally most of the home counties because they all seem pretty flat and bland - particularly Bedfordshire.

    Yorkshire is good - it has a few places to avoid - North Yorkshire is generally very wealthy and the scenery :sogood: East Yorks outside of Hull - think Beverley and entering the Vale of York is pretty rich as well. South Yorks is probably the worst - West Yorks is generally good - apart from Bradford.

    I agree with Derby and Nott'm it tends to have that bland East-Midlandsy dfeel that I get in Brum as well.

    I don't mean to be offensive - but I think overall Birmingham is the worst major British city. The best is Edinburgh, followed by Newcastle in my opinion. London is fascinating, but it's too big to have a generic feel.

    I live in Rotherham and it's not THAT bad

    The town centre is appalling though.

    I would have to agree with Derby, but that's only because it is pretty much the place in the UK which is furthest from the sea. Derby itself may be very nice (I don't know I haven't been there), but having grown up by the sea the idea of being that far away from the coast would make it the worst place to live for me.
